Famous Misquotes – No. 2

 

“I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it.”

This quote is usually attributed to Voltaire.

But did he say it?

No he didn’t.

It was written by Eveyln Beatrice Hall, who wrote a biography of Voltaire under the pseudonym of Stephen G. Tallentyre.

Fancy that!
